“At the Limits of Cure” A Lecture by Bharat Venkat

The Yadunandan Center for India Studies is proud to present a talk by Bharat Venkat from UCLA’s Institute for Society & Genetics and Department of History titled:

“At the Limits of Cure”


In 1950s Madras, an international team of researchers demonstrated that antibiotics were effective in treating tuberculosis. But just half a century later, reports out of Mumbai stoked fears about the spread of totally drug-resistant strains of the disease. Had the curable become incurable? Through an anthropological history of tuberculosis treatment in India, Dr. Venkat’s presentation will examine what it means to be cured, and what it means for a cure to come undone.


The conversation will take place at the Anatol Center on September 20th at 5:30PM.
